The Grain Mill of Rotterdam Overschie! Entry € 1,=/adult
Wednesday and Saturday between 10am and 3pm
In Overschie, until 1972, a round stone scaffolding mill “De Hoop” stood on the Delftweg near the Schie. For low-flying aircraft from Zestienhoven airport, this mill was a dangerous obstacle and it was therefore decided to relocate and rebuild the last mill of Overschie, once about 28, on the Overschiese Kleiweg. After the move, it was given the name De Speelman.
In May 1999 there was a beautiful artikel (Dutch) in “Molendewereld” with many photos about the rescue of the mill from May 1940.

Looking for a woman or man who would like to strengthen our team and preserve the craft of miller as an intangible heritage. Het Gilde van Vrijwillige Molenaars has made a textbook and there are pleasant informative meetings. Contact us using ‘Contact’ in the menu.
All work on the mill is carried out by volunteers who have completed the training to become a voluntary miller or are still learning to do so. The millers are Paul and Toby (not on this picture). The millers in training are Gerard (not on this picture), Leo, Ed and Ewoud, Arie helps with grinding and in the shop.
The mill is open!
